A federal judge [that has been conducting citizenship ceremonies for decades] has now been SUSPENDED for telling new US citizens to accept Trump as their US President!
The judge, John Primomo, told newly sworn-in US citizens that they need to accept President-elect Trump as the 45th US President.
Judge Primomo said Trump is “your president, and if you don’t like that, you need to go to another country.” After he made that simple statement he was suspended from overseeing citizenship ceremonies. OUTRAGEOUS!
“I can assure you that whether you voted for him or you did not vote for him, if you are a citizen of the United States, he is your president. He will be your President, and if you do not like that, you need to go to another country.”
I don’t see what the big deal is? What Judge Primomo said was the truth. If you are a US citizen then Donald Trump will be your President on January 20th, 2017.

Later on, when questioned about his statement, Judge Primomo said that he meant for his statement to come across as UNIFYING and RESPECTFUL. Judge Primomo also said that he did not vote for Trump.
“I wasn’t trying to say anything for or against Donald Trump. I was just trying to say something hopeful and unifying, and unfortunately it was taken out of context.”-Judge Primomo
I, personally, think that it is INSANE that he was suspended for making that comment. If anyone was offended by his statement then they need to grow up!
Tell me your thoughts on this entire situation!
